"Not a luxury hotel. The pool, whirlpool, and exercise room were close the first 24 hours of our stay. When they did open, the exercise room was being painted, the whirlpool looked like it hadn't been open for years, and there were ants all over the pool deck. Stay somewhere else.2018-02-27"
"The hotel rooms were comfortable and ultra clean. We were greeted with a smile and assigned our 3 rooms. The staff pointed out the location of the pool, exercise room, and ice machine. Breakfast included omelets and a variety of hot and cold food. A kitchen worker asked if everything was satisfactory and if there was anything else we'd like. Don't hesitate to stay here.2019-08-07"

"The hotel room was comfortable and clean, and the staff was friendly. The exhaust fan in the bathroom made a rattling noise, but that was a minor issue. The airport was within walking distance, but we weren't at all disturbed by plane noise. Good breakfast. Enjoy a stay here.2016-02-04"

"Not a good value. The entire 2nd floor of this hotel smelled like mildew. The carpet in my room felt soggy, and the hallway ceiling had leaks and falling plaster. The evening clerk was friendly and helpful, but the morning clerk was sleeping when I went to the lobby at 5:15 AM. Breakfast was good, and the attendant was friendly and kept the area clean. Don't stay here.2018-08-10"

"When I called about shuttle times, I was told that the 1st floor was undergoing renovation, but was assured that it wouldn't be a problem. When I arrived, I felt like I needed a hardhat. The "front desk" area looked like a storage closet, but the hotel clerk was nice. The room was adequate, but I was given an adjoining room, and a child in the next room cried and banged on the door. I had been told the shuttle started at 4:30 AM, but it didn't actually start until 6 AM. I had a horrid experience.2015-10-25"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
